This weekend has been full of good news. Like, school being out, Cabo having good weather next week for our vacation, AND winning a pincushion from Lynn over at Monkey Needle! People! I am so excited. I no longer have to use that hideous tomato. Instead I won a beautiful pincushion, and I am so excited. See, this whole quilting community just makes my life so much happier! And, you should really go check out her work because she MADE AN UMBRELLA. I know, I was in awe, too. No really, if you just kept reading, you better go back and click that link – it’s worth it. (Thank you, smiles!)
I also finished up my first ever pillow and now a monster has been created. Every scrap looks like a great place to start and I’ve already started hoarding backing fabric for my next one. Sickness, I tell you. To create the pillow front I used Molli Sparkles genius tutorial that you can find here. No really, there’s little ironing, need I say more? Or just go look at Molli’s work. It will bring instant happiness to your life. To form the pillow I used this pillow tutorial by Jaybird Quilts hosted over at Sew Mama Sew. Now. If I can make a pillow, anyone can make a pillow. This tutorial made everything easy.
Now… onto the pictures!
Of course, we can’t decide which orientation we like most. Thoughts?
I just can’t get over how much I love these little herringbones.
And now, for the back. I am obsessed.
The hubs even mentioned that he wanted this fabric for his quilt. Winning.
So, what are you waiting for – go back to the top, click on the links, and make a pillow! Woohoo. Also, baby girl granny quilt is done, but I’m waiting for Mom to see it before I post. I wanted to mail it out yesterday, but then I woke up at 12:45 and the post closes at 1:00. Yes, you read that right, 12:45. Can we say I got some quality pillow time this weekend! Today I’m linking up with Plum and June’s Let’s Get Acquainted Monday hosted over at Heart of Charnwood.
Happy quilting, y’all!
